Description of problem:
The installer gave me this error and allowed me to save it to a floppy disk...
This is on a pc chips m825g motherboard. V9.2.a VIA KM266 Pro socket 462 with Geforce GTS2 agp video card
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from cd
2. Gui install; linux at the fedora splash screen
3. Run through all the setup screens; transfer to disk image goes ok, two or three rpms installed and then crash message.
Actual Results: Crash
Expected Results: Rpms should install, reboot screen shows up, disk ejects and reboot cpu. Just like FC4 does on the machine.

This is what I saved after the installer crashed. Pretty nice feature to be
able to save the output. :)
There are a lot of error messages from your CD in the syslog. Did you check
Paul -- we need to handle this exception nicely and give people the media error
instead of just an exception :)
Upon double checking the cdrw disk with the test program at initial boot, it
showed a FAIL. I reburned it and the install worked fine.
Closing as report due to media issues
